London Calling

I admit defeat, blogging less is an impossible task for me.  I just received these fantastic photographs from UK photographer Julia Boggio.  I’ve lusted after Julia’s work from a far for a while now, and as I said last time I featured her “If you haven’t seen Julia Boggio’s amazing work yet you really really need to.  You need this in your life!”

Th ceremony of this quitensentailly London wedding took place at The Guards Chapel, St James which made for some fantastic (and cheeky) snaps (the Queen’s guards are not allowed to react to anything going on around them, they can’t smile, flinch or anything – I love being British sometimes – what a weird tradition!) 
The Bride wore a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and made her own fascinator for the evening part of the do. She wore a veil for the ceremony and then changed headpieces for the evening.

I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I have – seeing the London Eye in these shots makes me feel all patriotic!

She Does It Again…

Woohoo a new Rosie Parson photo shoot to share! I have seriously become obsessed with this Bristol photographer’s work and I am so excited I could scream because we are doing a photo shoot together next week! (stay tuned for the results!)

Now when I clapped eyes on this new set, I emailed Rosie straight away and demanded to post them..and being the generous lady she is, she told me to go right ahead.   You are seriously going to love these.

A Predictable Post?

So, you know about Bridal Soup now yeah?  Well the one of the guys behind it, Steve Gerrard is actually a fabulous photographer based in Birmingham, UK.  Being as I was to be a regular contributor to his new venture I figured I should check out his work as well, and boy am I glad I did..look at this amazin’ NY wedding.

When I emailed Steve to let him know I was going to feature one of his weddings he actually replied saying “Let me guess – the New York wedding!” am I that predicable!!?  Well for a well like this I am happy to be predictable!

I love flippin’ loads about this wedding – the dress, the glasses, the Groom Style (+ the long hair – I am all about men with long hair after Gareth grew his!) and the locations of the portraits to name but a few.

Indian Cafe Wedding

Blimey it’s busy at R’nR Bride HQ right now, I have a crazy amount of weddings to share (and one very special one I’m saving for my debut Savvy Scoop post on Monday – seriously it’s killing me keeping it quiet!) 

As you probably already know, I adore receiving every single one of your emails – whether it’s to share your wedding or a wedding you’ve photographed, to ask me my advice or a wedding-related question, or just to tell me you love me (they are the best hehe!). 
However this wedding sent to me by Rosie Parsons really stood out from the crowd (I love her and have featured her work so many times before!) because it really was a truly unique and original wedding.  You know when someone goes completely and madly OTT in describing their love of something?  And you figure it’s never going to be as good as they’ve built it up to be?  Well this is one of those moments – I’m going to annoy you with my seemingly exaggerated love of this wedding but when you see these photographs for yourself I’m sure you will think my crazy-person ramblings were justified!

Katheryn & James got married at the Bristol registry office (a gorgeous building in itself) but the reception venue, Thali Cafe is like nothing I’ve ever seen – I so want to go here!  The bright pink walls, Elvis posters and fairy lights really made for truly magical and awe-inspiring images. (OMG and don’t even get me started on all those little details – mini top hats, butterflies etc – love love love – as in so much I want my house to be decorated exactly like this)

Ok, I’m going to stop gushing now at just get on with showing you the photographs already!  Do you love them as much as I do?

Love you all!

Now I’m a Happy Little Wedding Blogger :o)

I was sad because I could only find these two images from this gorgeous looking wedding last week..but now I am happy because the photographer recognised my plight and sent me more from this amazing wedding!

 

I asked Nigel to tell me a little about himself and the couple, and he did it so well that I’m not going to try and re-write his words..so here they are in all their glory

 

I am a wedding photojournalist who captures the real moments of a couple’s special day. My style is completely candid and un-posed, and I have an eye for the unusual. Couples looking for something different come to me, because they know I shoot alternative unions (be they in the form of weddings, civil partnerships or parties) and they know I will listen to their needs & take care of them.

 I worked as a fashion stylist for several years before moving behind the lens, so I love it when couples with a strong sense of style approach me with their own unique take on a wedding. It’s something I can really get my teeth into. The people that tend to use me like to break the mould, even if it’s only a little.

The bride [in this wedding] had a strong sense of style, whilst her groom was much more conservative. She had this fabulous dress as you can see, and she just lit up everyone around her, wherever she went. The couple decided to hold their wedding over two days; the first day being just the service and a meal for family and close friends, and the second day they threw a huge party at The Groucho Club for everyone they knew. Their choices of clothing and the venues really put an alternative touch on the whole affair. A wedding that will be remembered.

I hope you like these photographs as much as I do.  Big up the UK photographers!
